They came into positions to own small countries and to exercise direct influence over the world's governments. They practically became the world 's governments, undemocratically controlling the lives of people through commerce. These corporations became known as Megacorps. One of the Megacorps, a European one, invented the CHIP. A device that is inserted into the neck and stimulates the brain stem to alter a persons perception of the outside world. The CHIP numbs a person's senses to the misery and squalor around them better than any drug and sold millions around the world. It could convince a user that the sun shone when it was raining and that they were more beautiful than they really were. The CHIP, like some drugs, also made the user open to auto-suggestion, allowing them to be manipulated by the Megacorps. The CHIP became a perfect tool for the Megacorps to manipulating the populace and to gain power with. It didn't take long before the Megacorps were corrupted and became crime Syndicates, fighting amongst each other for monopoly over CHIP manufacturing and control over the world. (From the game Syndicate on SEGA Genesis) ☆ Retrospective: The parallels in the above game plot compared to today’s economic, political and environmental climates are uncanny. Thinking about the CHIP as our very real and emerging developed tools for augmenting reality around us is the same escape. Albeit less mind-control as the above science fiction, the seed for persuasion and escapism is still there. Don’t lose yourself to a digital persona and playground. ☆ Lyrics: Neon city never sleeps was it real or in your dreams Riding fire through your sights why’d you smile when we would fight I know you know so call your bluff this girl in leather’s not enough We can’t look back what’s done is done now there’s nothing left but us La la la lala lala Love me love me love me like Love me love me love me like you’ll be the one to read the signs I feel the rush it’s pulling me to night and for the sun we left behind for all we seek in fear is out of sight La la la lala lala Love me love me love me like Love me love me love me like All that time left me so low you stole my highs said “gotta go” Roll the dice give chance a go if it’s goodbye I gotta know Thought you were gone but now we’re back stuck in this loop you’ll see the cracks I hate that you are just my type let’s play the game take back the night ☆ For more amazing artists check out: @tinywaves @hyperpopcollective @deskpopmusic @papercranecollective @ravertoothtiger and @gamechops

The Sights and Sounds of Bayview: Juana Tello trains the next generation of activists

San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood has one of the highest concentrations of people ages 17 or younger in the city of San Francisco. Juana Teresa Tello is working to train these young people to be activists in their community. Tello leads the Youth in Power program at the social justice organization, People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER) – a radical, grassroots organization serving working class African Americans and Latinos in San Francisco. Tello herself was exposed to community organizing at a young age. Both her parents are lifelong community activists. She remembers “being five or six years old, going out with them to give out food and seeing families with kids [her] age living in cars.” Tello says that gave her “a different side of understanding and awareness of where [her] community was at.” When Tello was 10, her family moved to Bayview from the Mission/Potrero area. “When my family first moved into the neighborhood, we were part of the first wave of Latino families that was coming into the neighborhood,” says Tello. There were 12 people living in her house. “I grew up being exposed to a lot of poverty, myself, knowing that my situation was really bad, but also, never really having to complain about food,” Tello remembers. Despite their own circumstances, Juana says her parents continued to fight for a better life for the people around them. One day, in 2005, a canvasser knocked on their door, and Juana’s dad joined the group on the spot. It wasn’t long before POWER’s leaders recruited his daughter, too. Tello was 18 years old. “When I started there was no youth program, so I was one of the youngest members. Just because of my parents, I think I was always the youth in meetings with adults,” Tello recalls. Tello says the adults were excited to see a young person getting involved. They asked her to help design a program that would attract even more young people. After a yearlong process of research and community feedback, Youth in Power, launched in 2008. And Tello sits at the helm. One of the first issues they tackled was making public transportation more affordable for young people. After about two-and-a-half years of campaigning by Youth in Power and other groups, the city agreed to launch an 18-month pilot program called Free Muni for Youth, which offers free rides to low-income young people ages five to 17. So far, 30,000 kids have signed up. Youth in Power has had other lasting effects, including on the individuals involved in the group. “I’ve learned how to be able to speak my mind freely without any hesitation,” says fifteen-year-old participant Alejandra Mendez-Ruiz. “I’m learning all these facilitation skills and how to build a community with my friends.” Tello hopes to show that teenagers are more engaged in their communities than people think. “I think, often, young people are seen as apathetic. Seen as people who really don’t care, who are rowdy, who are obnoxious. You know, we’re all young people at one point. I don’t think I would be where I am if I didn’t have support of adult mentors when I was young,” says Tello.

Sights and Sounds of Bayview: 'Food Guardian' Kenny Hill spreads the gospel of healthy living

San Francisco is considered one of the most health-conscious cities in the world. In fact, The American College of Sports and Fitness ranked the Bay Area number four out of the 50 biggest metropolitan areas for health and fitness. Despite this ranking, San Francisco has several neighborhoods with high rates of diabetes and chronic heart disease. Kenny Hill grew up in one of these neighborhoods, Bayview-Hunters Point, so he knows first hand how difficult it can be to live healthy in that part of the city. Growing up, Kenny’s mother had a tradition of getting all eight children in the family to sit down and eat together. “It was positive for us, like it was a time for us to sit down and talk about what was going on throughout the day, who was having problems, and who needed help with things,” says Hill. But the tradition fell apart when his parents divorced. “I was left to fend on my own in a sense because my mom, she would be at work, she’d give me money and say, ‘Oh, make sure you get something to eat,’ and so I would have to eat McDonald’s, Burger King, or something like that," says Hill. Hill says he was overweight and unconcerned about it. But Kenny’s life changed when he registered late for classes at City College. He enrolled in a health education class and immediately knew he was in the right spot. “On the first day she [the teacher] was saying that when you have like, people that have more fast food chains and liquor stores in their communities, they oftentimes have these types of health outcomes," recalls Hill. "And me just sitting there, thinking back and saying, ‘Well, I live in a place that’s very similar to what she’s talking about. My grandparents, they have diabetes.'” Hill made changes to his eating and exercise habits, even becoming a member of 24-Hour Fitness on 16th and Potrero. He dropped more than a hundred pounds from his 374-pound frame. These things were unthinkable to Hill before his health education class. But Hill did not stop at changing his own life. He became a Food Guardian and realized he has a responsibility of spreading the healthy-living gospel within the Bayview neighborhood. “Now I feel like the Department of Public Health knows that they need to have people in the communities that they want to serve working with them. It’s key to have Black and brown people working in the Department of Public Health,” says Hill. Many people are positively influenced by Hill's work as a Food Guardian, but none more than his son. “I try to sit down with him to eat meals and stuff once we get home. That's really the only time we have together to sit down and talk ... for him to know that I'm ok and I'm well,” says Hill. And Hill is well. Perhaps better than he would’ve been if he had registered for his classes in time.

32. Sights and Sounds of Bayview: Tracy Zhu's 'Toxic Tours'

Sights and Sounds of Bayview: Tracy Zhu's 'Toxic Tours'

These days, more and more researchers link our health to our daily surroundings. Take for example, neighborhoods that sit next to freeways exposed to more air pollution. That’s the case for San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood, which is home to not just freeways, but also some of the city’s dirtiest industries, including a sewage plant. It also has a higher proportion of brownfields and leaky underground fuel tanks than other parts of the city. Because of these sites, Bayview residents have a higher risk of developing asthma and lung cancer. Bayview’s Tracy Zhu is trying to do something about. From China, to Chinatown, to Bayview When Zhu’s family moved from China to San Francisco they first lived in a SRO in Chinatown. “There were four daughter, my two parents, so there were six of them and soon I was popping out. And then my younger sister, then my brother,” explains Zhu. When she was seven, her family saved enough money and bought a home in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood, with a lot more rooms. “There are specific things I remember in the early stages of moving like running into this room and saying I claim this room,” says Zhu. Even though they had more space, she felt isolated in her new neighborhood. “I loved living in the greater Chinatown area because we could walk to Chinatown there were tons of mini-parks everywhere,” says Zhu. Instead, Bayview didn’t have as many things for kids to do or safe places to play, she says. Bayview does have much of the city’s steel manufacturing, junkyards, auto repairs and at one-point slaughterhouses. Zhu didn’t know what to make of these things, until she went to Mount Holyoke College in Western Massachusetts. She was an Environmental Studies major and did things like measure tree height and biomass. Though, it wasn’t until she worked in the City of Holyoke that she started looking at urban environments. “I was working with that community and really understanding the health issues that affected them from the diesel air pollution from the seven different freeways that cut through their neighborhood from the factories that was pumping away,” recalls Zhu. Specifically South Holyoke, formerly a heavy industrial area littered with vacant lots. “That’s when I really understood how we could talk about environmental issues in the urban context that talk about race, class, and immigrant rights and all these other social justice issues,” Zhu says. This realization followed her home, when she returned to Bayview after graduating. “I looked around and said wait a moment my neighborhood is really similar to that of the City of Holyoke. It struck me as so weird that [it] had never occurred to me while I was living here that there was this level of environmental injustices happening in my neighborhood,” says Zhu. Zhu wanted to do something that would engage people in addressing the environmental problems in her neighborhood. So she started leading “toxic tours” – bike tours of San Francisco that guide people right up to examples of current pollution sources and past problems. “I’m going to try to highlight what can we incorporate or what can we think about these histories and incorporate people in an empowering way such that we don’t replicate the same problems throughout history,” Zhu says that’s the goal. Toxic tour On a sunny Saturday morning in San Francisco, Zhu leads a group of ten women on bikes up to one example. They come to a stop at Illinois Street in the Dog Patch. Old wooden shack-like structures sandwich between massive dilapidated buildings fashioning broken windows, graffiti, and rust block the view of the Bay. Behind a barbed wire fence sits the block-sized remnants of the Pacific Coast Steel Company. You can almost imagine what once was a bustling port. Right across the street modern and sleek condos juxtaposes the old with the new world. “So we have this dichotomy between decaying industrial city some of it still in use and sprinkled here and there some parks,” explains Zhu. As the cyclists examine the area, Zhu asks the group to think about all of the warehouses surrounding them. “What I want to emphasize is warehouse district. What comes along with these warehouses? Trucks! Diesel trucks!” says Zhu. “While most of our air pollution comes from cars it’s like 75 percent most of the cancer risks comes from diesel air pollution and in addition to that diesel air pollution sources like warehouses, trucks, truck depots, the postal office, the ports, airplanes, train depots they’re mostly located next to low-income communities of color,” says Zhu. This is the kind of situation Zhu hopes to prevent in the future. The next stop on the tour shows how a group of local residents came together to turn an environmental wasteland into a community resource. They arrive at Heron’s Head Park, where the city’s first off-the-grid sewage and electric site – The EcoCenter – sits on top of a small hill. Zhu worked here when it first opened. Inside the group stands in front of a chest-high glass tank filled with green algae filtering wastewater. “We’re treating all of our sewage on-site because also 80 percent of the City’s sewage gets treated in Bayview on Third Street and Evans,” says Zhu. “So we’re saying that we’re getting over burdened with the environmental negative impacts when the whole city benefits from this system so we’re not going to plug into this system that continues to spew out odor pollution into our neighborhood.” This all happened because nearby residents rallied together to do something about an abandoned site. “In this particular neighborhood folks were saying to the Port, hey this is a brownfield. This is a contaminated site. You have to do something with it. Either dig it up and throw it away or make it into something useful. And as an environmental justice community folks in the neighborhood said well digging it up and throwing it away will not really get rid of this contamination, you know. It will just be someone else’s problem,” says Zhu. First community members restored the natural wetlands and created Heron’s Head Park then the EcoCenter, to promote environmental conservation. Zhu considers this a community victory. Through the EcoCenter window you can see another one – remnants of an only PG&E power plant. A community victory “If you look behind the electrical transformers that are still there. What do you guys see on that hill?” aks Zhu. “Housing!” the cyclists say in unison. “Housing, yup. It’s mostly affordable housing but there’s single-family homes and cooperative-owned homes,” says Zhu. Toxic inventories of the area found soil and groundwater contaminated with harmful chemicals from the plant, shipbuilding, and other activities on the land throughout the years. After mounting community pressure, PG&E closed the plant in 2006. Today PG&E continues to clean up contaminants in the area. “So this has been a huge environmental justice success of shutting it down,” says Zhu. The EcoCenter is the last stop on the tour, but the group carries on for a final ride down Third Street. Zhu’s tours show how industry and development play huge roles in shaping the neighborhoods we live in. But they also prove that people, shape them too. “You know how do you love your space, love your environment enough and understand it enough to get to the point of wanting to stand up for it and wanting to be a voice for your neighborhood or community,” says Zhu. She hopes to do this by one day becoming an urban planner. For now she stays involved with the EcoCenter and other environmental groups with the hopes of getting people to create equitable, healthy, and safe neighborhoods.
